To make chocolate garnishes , you can immediately follow the guidelines that we have prepared below, namely:

1. Melting Chocolate

The first step in making chocolate garnish is to melt the Tulip White Decor Compound first. Why? Because melted chocolate is easier to form into a variety of varied and attractive decorations.

You can use 2 methods to melt chocolate, namely using the microwave or the au-bain marie technique.

Before we explain how to melt chocolate using these 2 methods, cut the Tulip White Decor Compound bars into small pieces so that they melt faster. Next, please choose one of the following two methods:


Melting chocolate in the microwave is very easy. You just need to put the chocolate in a heat-safe bowl. Then, place the bowl in the microwave for 10 seconds at maximum temperature, take it out and stir the chocolate, then put it back in the microwave . Repeat these steps until the chocolate is completely melted.

The key to melting chocolate completely is the stirring process. Make sure you stir the chocolate every time you put it back in the microwave so that the melted chocolate has a perfectly runny texture.

Many people just leave the chocolate in the microwave without stirring and this will prevent the chocolate from melting completely and you may find lumps of chocolate.

Using the Au-Bain Marie Technique

Apart from the microwave , there is also the au-bain marie technique or what is also known as the double boiler technique. The way to melt chocolate with this technique is to place a bowl over hot water.

Pour the chocolate into a large bowl, bigger than the size of the saucepan to heat the water below. This is to prevent water from getting into the melted chocolate.

Of course, in using the au-bain marie technique, you have to stir the chocolate with a spatula so that it melts completely and doesn't get lumpy. Also, pay attention to the use of fire to heat water. You only need to turn on a low heat to prevent the water from boiling over.

After going through the chocolate melting process, the next stage is printing the chocolate. You can provide paper that is usually used as a cake base for printing chocolate.

You can mold chocolate into thin sheets and then shape them with a knife. Another way to make chocolate garnishes is to use a rolling pin.

You can put the chocolate dough into a plastic triangle, then make a circular line on a rolling pin that has been lined with paper. You can also do this on a flat surface to create different garnishes .

3. Cooling the Chocolate

Formed chocolate can be cooled in a cool place or you can put it in the refrigerator for 5 minutes. Make sure the chocolate is really hard before forming or creating a garnish .
